What is Bondage?
Most people have heard of bondage but not everyone knows what it actually is. Bondage (the B in BDSM) is the process of consensually tying, restraining, or binding a partner for erotic stimulation. It sounds simple because it is - not every aspect of BDSM involves gimp suits, ball gags and whips!
Of course, many people like to incorporate other aspects of BDSM into their bondage play. It could be getting spanked or humiliated when restrained, becoming submissive to a dominate partner while tied up, or dressing up in BDSM gear before being bound.
You don’t need to use all aspects at once - even just being tied to the headboard or using handcuffs counts as a form of bondage! Regardless of what you are look for from a bondage experience, result assured that you will find exactly what you need here at our BDSM shop.
Before you start buying all the bondage sex toys you want to try, it does help to go into things with some idea of what you want from the entire experience.
For instance, do you get turned on by the thought of being dominated while you are restrained? Maybe you want to do the dominating yourself? Is there an excitement from being physically tied up without a way of escaping? Area you unsure of what you find so arousing about bondage?
By asking yourself these questions you will get a better idea of what types of BDSM gear and bondage sex toys are worth buying. Of course, you may not know initially and want to go in blind, which is fine too!

Cuffs - A Bondage Classic That is Perfect for Beginners
When it comes to BDSM gear there are few things more iconic than bondage handcuffs. Sex cuffs are one of the most widely used types of bondage gear in the UK, with many people having experienced it in the bedroom.
After all, BDSM handcuffs are simple to use so a great option for beginners. You don’t need to know any complex knots or tying methods, with most sexy handcuffs designed to restrain the wearer while keeping them comfortable and pain-free.

Ties - Soft Restraints for a Sensual Experience
While handcuffs are certainly a great choice for bondage beginners, we also recommend bondage ties for newbies. The reason is they are generally more comfortable to wear, typically being made from soft materials like satin or silk.
Wondering how to tie someone up? Getting tied to the bed a great place to start, although it does help to know the simplest and safest ways to tie your partner up during bondage play - there are many great websites that can help you with this.
As mentioned, bed ties are a good option for beginners as they are generally more comfortable and less likely to cause accidental pain. Some may enjoy the rougher feeling of cuffs and the fact they are much harder to escape from, so if you don’t want anything too intense then ties are a good option.
Tying to the bed is not the only option for bondage ties, as they can be used to restrain someone in various positions. It could be hands behind the back, legs to the bedposts, or even more complex bondage like being hog-tied, although rope ties are generally more suited for the latter.
